TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION OF HIGHWAY 150 (GLENN SPRINGS HIGHWAY) AND HIGHWAY 176 IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY THE "ARMY SPECIALIST MELVIN LEE MEMORIAL INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Lee was a native of Pacolet who was drafted into the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He began his tour on March 2, 1968 at 21 years old. Lee was killed in action in South Vietnam in the Tay Ninh province on April 6, 1969; and
Whereas, Lee's ultimate sacrifice was honored with a Purple Heart medal and is commemorated on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.; and
Whereas, Lee is one of the four thousand American Gold Star Casualties recorded in the Honor States, an organization dedicated to presenting vital achievements, recognition, affiliations, awards, and images that honor fallen United States service members; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by naming a portion of road in the State in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the intersection of Highway 150 (Glenn Springs Highway) and Highway 176 in Spartanburg county the "Army Specialist Melvin Lee Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and presented to the family of PFC Melvin Lee.
